ABOUT POND YACHT ANTIQUES
Thank you for visiting our website we hope that you will find the yachts we offer for sale as interesting as we do.
We have sailed all our lives and since taking retirement we have combined our sailing background with a long standing interest in antiques.
We are located in the South East of England where we specialize in the purchase and sale of pond yachts from the 19th and 20th centuries.
The yachts we offer are either of bespoke design and construction or sold by such iconic stores as Gamages, Hamleys, and Bassett-Lowke. We also offer yachts by manufacturers such as Bowman, Hobbies,and Star Productions of Birkenhead.
This website was launched over 10 years ago and we have been amazed at the interest it has generated from all over the world. We have sold yachts, not only within the United Kingdom, but throughout the EU, Finland, Canada, US, Australia, and New Zealand.
Demand for Star Production yachts in particular has increased substantially over the past few years. To satisfy the many collectors of these wonderful yachts we have given them a section on the site all to themselves. For further information about Star and the history of the company I can highly recommend 2 websites www.birkenheadstaryachts.co.uk and www.vintagepondyachts.co.uk
We also have a section showcasing a selection of high quality classic yachts by Alexander of Preston and others of that standard.
If you would prefer to restore your own yacht we also have a section offering a selection of hulls and projects.
We occasionally offer items for sale via EBAY under the userid of PondYachtAntiques where we have 100% Positive Feedback.
The website contains a range of items currently in stock along with a guide price (exclusive of shipping and insurance) and full description. Should you require further information about any particular item, more photographs perhaps, then please do not hesitate to e-mail us quoting the reference number of the item in which you are interested.
We ship items all over the world. If you would like to know how much it would cost to ship to wherever you are please provide details and we will respond with a courier quotation including full tracking and insurance.
We are members of the Vintage Model Yacht Group. If you are interested in pond yachts and model boats they have a very useful website www.vmyg.org.uk with lots of information on the history of the boats and how to maintain them. Membership is available wherever you are in the world at a very reasonable cost.
We would also like to recommend the website for CJB Boatyard www.cjbboatyard.com Their interest lies in Sutcliffe tinplate motor boats and Triang yachts.
There are also two manufacturers in the UK producing new Pond Yachts. Their yachts are made to a high standard and are reported to sail very well. Their websites are www.haycroftpondyachts.com and www.grovepondyachts.com
